While nautical interior design choices are typically relegated to kitschy beach rentals, the latest release from furniture brand Blu Dot is perfectly suited to the modern home. Meet the Port Dining Chair, a sailing-inspired seat with the cozy elements of Dutch design. Minneapolis-based Blu Dot offers a range of modern pieces that embody traditional design. The Port Dining Chair in particular showcased stunning woodworking with the curved back and seat. Additionally, the chair features cross dowels and tenon joints, a mark of traditional craftsmanship. And, most importantly, it’s comfortable to sit in.
While the design is striking from every angle, it’s the profile look that reveals such unique creativity. In a subtle way, the Port Dining Chair clearly evokes a sail raised up on a mast. But, it’s not just for show. The design allows for further reinforcement since the curved elements connect directly to the back legs.
The Port Dining Chair comes fully assembled and is available in three color options. The black on ash and white oak options are $449, and the walnut costs $549.
